19th July: Regretfully, the paying-in point at the Berwick Youth Project has had to close. We are looking for a new location for a Berwick PiP as a matter of urgency.

18th July: As at the end of June, we had:
* 464 members (421 adult, 43 junior)
* Total savings of £200,900 with £96,100 out on loan
* and over the past three months, we have made 21 loans totalling £37,900

29th June: Changes to Office Hours – with effect from 1st August, the Stobhill office will be open Weds, Fri and 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month 9am – 12noon. The Stobhill Paying-In Point (PiP) will still operate on Tuesdays 10am – 12noon.

22nd April: Coming up on Lionheart Radio tomorrow 5pm…  Have you ever wondered what a Credit Union is for?  Why is it different from a bank?  How can it save people from going to payday lenders, or loan sharks? What does it mean to join a Credit Union? To find out, and to learn more,  join Simon Nolan on Monday Mix in a conversation with Chris Wilson who runs the Alnwick branch of the Northumberland Credit Union.

30th March: We don’t routinely do instant loans – but we do have a pot of money called the “Repossession Prevention Fund” which is available to give five year interest-free loans to people in mortgage or rent arrears. It isn’t suitable for people in deep debt trouble – since you have to repay the loan AND continue to keep up with your ongoing mortgage or rent payments.

Eligibility for loans is assessed by the Citizens’ Advice Bureaux – we just manage the loans – so contact your CAB (in Northumberland) if interested.

19th March: Opening hours at our Stobhill office and now back to normal – the Mondays and Fridays plus 2nd & 4th Wednesdays 9am – 12noon – and the Morpeth-Stobhill paying-in point Tuesdays 10-12noon. 
Emails and phone messages will be regularly monitored and all other paying-in points continue to operate normally.

27th February: AGM postponed till Thursday 22nd March due to heavy snow across the county

3rd February: Due to staff convalescence, our Stobhill office will only be open Tuesdays 10-12noon, Wednesdays 9-12noon and Fridays 9am-12noon until the end of February.
Emails and phone messages will be regularly monitored and all the paying-in points will be operating normally.

15th January: Our 2018 AGM – now postponed to Tues 20th March – 7pm at Morpeth Methodist Church. Agenda papers can be downloaded here

5th January: The newsletter and Annual statements will be going out to all members shortly. You can also download the newsletter here.

14th December: Our Office in Stobhill will be closed for Christmas from noon on Tuesday 19th Dec until 9am on Monday 9th January. Emails to and phone messages will be monitored over the holiday season.

2nd October 2017: Welcome to our refurbished and relaunched website. Do let us know what you think of it! We welcome suggestions for improvements.

1st October 2017: Our loan interest rate increases to 1.25% per calendar month on the outstanding balance (16.1% APR) from today. This is due to the loss of grantfunding from Northumberland CC, but we believe it is still one of the lowest interest rates available for loans up to £3000. Pre-existing loans will continue to be charged at 1% interest per calendar month.
